I stopped by their store on Rhode Island Ave NE last week to check it out to get an idea on what they were about. Walking away, I feel this is perfect fit for the site. It truly is a neighborhood grocer and fits within the small town feel of the Anacostia Historic District. I had a great conversation with the store operator to learn more about the Market. She informed me the Market is a mission driven grocery dedicated to developing retail solutions that work in, and for, food desert communities. They are not there to replace the Safeway or Giant, but more of a spot were you can run in grab milk and bread and run out.
Check out some of the pics below. Would love to get your thoughts.
